I've only just clocked that panco wants to brick some fools window but wants to ask where to get bricks without leaving a digital trace, sorry all, I'm as thick as a plinth this year


What's your favourite brick? But biased but I really love the cynhordi brick, it's as hard as FUCK and is a nice hue

Which organ?

Well, it's a shitty Viscount 4500 classic I got from ebay for a couple of hundred quid, but it does have a(n almost) full pedal board. The main thing is that in spite of being made in 1995, it's fully midi-equipped (except for the swell pedal, which is basically just a volume control for the feet). So this means I can plug it into Hauptwerk and GrandOrgue on my laptop. For the latter I've installed the Friesach organ you can get free online, and it sounds fucking incredible through headphones.

You should hear my Salomé Grand Choeur. People can't get enough of that shit. I do play it almost twice as fast as the recordings on youtube (which are really quite bad) but it's not that hard at all.

The bricks are really for under the bench, but now that you mention it I might get another couple to adfenestrate too.

Wear 70s platform boots like the best organ players and stop with these appalling threads.

Asking for advice on buying bricks on CaB is like going to the gents in your local and asking for advice on how to cook a woodcock.

99p and no bids, get in quick

I don't understand how these things are supposed to work. What are the metal lamina things for? And what is the screw thing for? Presumably it goes flat on the floor on the rubber bit?

I would hazard a guess that the reserve price will be in excess of £200. Also, don't forget the £50 postage.

B&Q sell these for 43p. I'm sure you'll fit a couple of these into your satchel.

Turn the screw to jack the wedge in or out with the resulting increase of height, the other bits are just shims

Still a bargain

You obviously live somewhere rather bizarre E S Peacock, try that here and you'll be leaving with offers of handed down flesh rubs, the loan of a clockwork spit and bales of wild-grown special herbs that can alter the whole experience immeasurably.  I am not even lying.

Although he should be careful his eyes are not larger than his biceps.  All very well to fit them in, old darling but it's the carrying that's the measure of the man (or woman).

Very recently, in the course of my lawful occupation, I came across two ancient (abandoned) encaustic tiles.  Very fucking beautiful they were too.  About 6cm thick and 35cm square, the sort of thing one might find on the floor of a fine cathedral or ancient and wealthy gothic great hall.  Anyway, I decided they should come with me.  Fucking hell, freezing weather, about five or six miles home in the dead of night.  My poor dear arms.  I almost set them free.  But not quite.  And now they are mine.

I expect childbirth is similar.

I had some floorstanding speakers on them, worked fine.

Usefully they've got jack sockets in them to, so you can connect your guitars up to them and pretend you've got a well metal set of effects boxes.

Sometimes you can get industrial waste and building materials from a local scrapyard, for pennies, sometimes even free.

I want two bricks as my organ bench needs to be raised up. I'm currently using a copy of Wittgenstein's Philosophical Investigations and some Thomas Hardy books, but they are too wobbly even to be useful for this meagre endeavour—thus rendering them completely worthless, not just qua literature.

I'd look to buy them soon. Come the end of March, the prices may sky rocket, what with Brickxit and all...

That’s not the definition of a brick, pal.

No, this isn’t.  Same cunts who sell “Grey squirrel red squirrel” - just jamming all the keywords in.

It’s not vintage retro, and it’s not a game and ‘watch with mother’ homing-dinosaur.  Put in bin.
